OG Kush has a history that is swathed in mystery and confusion. The most likely version of its background is as a cross of ChemDawg with Pakistani Kush and Lemon Thai. It has achieved great prominence after being championed by an assortment of movie stars and music performers, especially amongst rap artists. The medical marijuana community has also really gone for this strain in a big way.
The smell of this strain is really quite attention-grabbing; it is very powerful and combines an ultra-dank quality with citrus and a diesel fuel/detergent aroma. It is quite unmistakable and once experienced it is never to be forgotten. It is a 75% indica strain that can be cultivated indoors as well as outdoors in mild climates. Although the higher latitudes of northern Europe are a stretch for this strain it will do well at slightly lower latitudes and a mild continental climate will be fine.
Indoor growers will see plants that grow to a height of between 90 - 160 cm. tall producing great harvests of about 425 - 475 gr/m2 in a flowering time of between 7 and 9 weeks. Outdoors plants can grow to be 220 cm tall if planted in large pots or, better still, directly into the ground where the roots have lots of space to spread out. In northern latitudes harvest time will be during the month of October with production of up to 500 - 550 gr/plant. Buds grow large and dense with a light green colour and are covered in a heavy coating of resin.
The flavour is deliciously more-ish with a persistent after-taste that goes on and on. THC production is high at 19% with medium CBD. Its effect is potent both in the cerebral as well as the physical sense and gives feelings of happiness and euphoria. After a while a wonderful feeling of relaxation takes over and it's easy to see just why OG Kush has gained such a following amongst therapeutic users for stress, pain, depression and insomnia.
